OptiQ catheters deliver the unparalleled accuracy that has long been recognized as the industry standard.1,2
Exclusive, enhanced algorithm provides filtration of noise artifact, allowing OptiQ to minimize signal energy requirements, which may result in more accurate and reliable CCO data, and may potentially improve patient safety.
Eliminates the need for bolus cardiac output injections because the system is fully automatic. This may reduce the risk of fluid overload and potentially decreases the risk for contamination.
Proper thermal coil placement can be confirmed without X-rays due to the OptiQ Catheter's RV/Distal Thermal Positioning Port (DTPP™). This allows for as-needed confirmation of the correct coil position without costly, time-consuming X-rays.
The 15 cm long thermal coil is smooth and flush with the catheter body, allowing the system to leverage its optimum detectable signal at the lowest possible power level per length of coil, keeping warming at a safe, gentle level.
The OptiQ Catheters are part of a complete line of pulmonary artery catheters offered with no natural rubber latex components in order to reduce the risk of patient latex allergy or hypersensitivity, without compromising performance. A recent study of antilatex IgE antibodies in blood donors has shown that the prevalence of latex sensitivity may be as high as 6-12%3 or up to 37 million people in the U.S. alone.
